This is helpful and I hope you can help me too.
I finished my sophomore year at University of Florida with a 3.8 GPA and I believe I’ll be in the mid 170s when I take the LSAT. I am only thinking about Harvard and Yale right now.
My GPA is my main concern. It would be higher except I had a lot of AP classes and some junior college credits while in high school. As a result, I’ve taken more higher level classes at UF than the average student.
Will Harvard and Yale consider the rigor of my courses when they compare me to students from more prestigious schools with higher GPAs?
Hi Gabriel and thanks for your inquiry.
These schools will certainly note both the level of difficulty in your classes and the overall course load (hours per semester) you took. Therefore, I wouldn’t worry about the GPA as long as you maintain that over the next two years. If you keep a focus on your extracurricular activities and developing strong wow factors and story themes, you can be as competitive as anyone else when you apply.
Best of luck with your future applications!
